     Fans of the 1995 Judge Dredd movie starring Sylvester Stallone will be familiar with this MRC 1/9th scale "ABC Warrior" robot. I had seen a few pictures on the internet but was not originally interested in it. However I was looking to build a derelict robot in a washed-up coastal setting. So the Dredd Warrior Robot was the closest match to what I had in my imagination. I wanted to play with water effects in a really small scale and supply the smallest possible ocean-going liner to provide a sense of the enormous scale of the rusting robot.

    I bought the kit off EBay in July 2018. It came from Thailand and arrived in a small box tied up with string. The kit parts come in a plastic bag. However the instruction sheet is a nightmare. This is a limited run kit and the instructions show it was originally by MRC (Model Rectifier Corporation). The original kit instructions have been photocopied, then photocopies made of the photocopies, and so on and so on... Until the Xth generation copies that come with this kit are practically unreadable. MRC originally delivery this as a vinyl kit although the parts look resin to me. Fortunately the diorama I plan for this does not require me to glue this together with any degreee of movie-accuracy and most of it will be buried under sand dunes anyway.

    Judging from the lack of hits on Google it has been a very, very long time since MRC released the original of this kit. Given the date of the movie this may have been produced in the late 1990's only before going off catalogue. We wonder if they are aware that a producer in Thailand is brazenly ripping off their kits?

The model is now only available off of EBay from Thailand but judging form these faded photocopied instructions this is a copy. The MRC 1/9th scale "ABC Warrior" robot total part count. Despite the 'knock-off' nature of the kit the moulding are actually quite clean even if the detail is pretty soft. The MRC 1/9th scale "ABC Warrior" robot from the 1995 movie "Judge Dredd". I don't need a lot of detail for the planned diorama as the robot will mostly be buried. The MRC 1/9th scale "ABC Warrior" robot from the 1995 movie "Judge Dredd". I req guitar strings may be the only extras required.
